Editors’ Notes

The Liverpool trio Stealing Sheep is influenced by Broadcast, Mice Parade, vintage Krautrock, early-'00s freak folk, and the 1975 film Escape to Witch Mountain. Its 2012 debut album, Into the Diamond Sun, is bountiful with hypnotizing three-part female vocal harmonies, psychedelic jams, and rhythms that click like clockwork. “The Garden” sets the tone with guitarist Emily Lansley, percussionist Lucy Mercer, and keyboard player Rebecca Hawley singing siren harmonies over lysergic guitar leads and alluring analog keyboard tones that would have made the late, great Trish Keenan proud. The trio’s penchant for shape-shifting songs is evident throughout this debut, especially on “Shut Eye,” which grooves angularly on interchangeable foundations and modular arrangements. The band's love for droning tones comes to life in “Rearrange,” which is nicely contrasted by buoyant and playful melodies. Similarly, the demurely cool “White Lies” plays like an homage to United States of America leader Joseph Byrd, while “Genevieve” is the closest that Stealing Sheep comes to accessible indie pop. At nearly 10 minutes, the closer “Bear Tracks” proves to be the most experimental.

Liverpool trio Stealing Sheep comprised Emily Lansley (guitar, vocals), Rebecca Hawley (keys, vocals), and Lucy Mercer (percussion, vocals) who met in 2010 and formed the band in the city over a cup of tea at the Mello Mello café. The group set about writing and rehearsing that summer and began to produce their haunting psych-folk sound, drenched with otherworldly harmonies, jaunty guitars, and almost tribal, hypnotic beats. With a handful of songs written, the band launched into recording what would...
